Power for Purpose: Resources for Leaders

Now is the time to work with those who have been elected to protect our democracy and safeguard our future by taking action on the urgent climate crisis. It is your role, as leaders in this campaign, to move members of your congregation or community into action. The RAC will provide trainings and resources for volunteer leaders like yourself on how to move members of your congregation or community into effective action. Together we will prevent the devastation of climate change and strengthen our democracy.

We want to hear from you! If you are planning an event in your community, or already did one, let us know. Your feedback and reporting helps us show how powerful we are together and learn what is working across the Movement. Fill out our planning and reporting form today.
